A few things are still different this year, but the shop is still packed full of amazing treasures, so take a look at our extra details below, and swing by for a visit– either in-store or online.


The in-store limit is 8 people at one time including children. Please take a peek to make sure there is room for your party before entering. If we are at capacity you will be asked to wait outside on one of our covered benches until there is room for you. This is first-come-first-serve, but if you’d like a guaranteed shopping time, please email Alison at [email protected] to see about a personal shopping time outside of our normal hours.

You must wear a face covering at all times while in the store. We will have masks available to you if you need one. Please make sure your mouth and nose are completely covered. Extra points for fun masks. (;

Please use sanitizer before handling anything in the store. Don’t worry, we have plenty to share. Also remember to keep a safe distance from other customers at all times.

Shop online! Almost everything in the Historic Shell Holiday Shop is available to order online, and you can shop anytime. Just pick what you’d like to take home, pay online and let us know when you’d like to pick it up. Please give us at least 1 hour to fill your order.
Pick-up is available at the the Holiday Shop (232 Front Street N, Issaquah) Friday-Sunday 12:30-5PM. Please park near the station and go to the building to request your bundle. If you have any issues text or call 425-281-9083 or email [email protected].

Private Shopping available including before 12 and after 6 on our open days. Please email Alison to arrange a private shopping time.

All sales are final, which is our policy every year, but even more important this year to protect the health of our customers and artists.

Hours and Open Dates are subject to change. We can’t predict the future, so do consider getting your shopping done early. The bonus is that you will have even more options to choose from! You can see the latest news at or contact Alison.

Any other questions? Alison’s your gal- [email protected], 425-281-9083.

All out artists appreciate your support, and I love getting to interact with you all every year.

Artists rely heavily on sales they make during the holiday season, and these couple of years have been extra tricky. If you have the means, please consider supporting artist businesses and small, local businesses.
Your impact is huge, and we 🖤 you.
